Wushu (Kung Fu) is the term for all the martial art styles in China. It consists of thousands of different External styles (Shaolin, Wing Chun, Nan Quan) and Internal styles (Tai chi, Ba Gua, Qi Gong) either using bare hands or armed with traditional Chinese weapons. This art of self-defense is now an international sport and a mesmerising form of performing art.
The wealth of Wushu’s philosophy, the beauty of its movements, the difficulty factor and the systematic training methods sets Wushu apart from other martial arts. Every movement in Wushu must exhibit sensible combat application and artistic beauty.
